  • location: High Street, Honley
  • status: no longer exists
  • category: church or chapel

Built in 1826[1] to replace an earlier smaller chapel situated at Green Cliff, it was dedicated on 26 November 1827.[2]

The Sunday School was initially situated under the chapel and was accessed via Cuckoo Lane. This was replaced with a dedicated building nearby in 1879.

The chapel was renovated and extended in 1893 at a cost of around £1,800.

Concerns over the western wall of the chapel during the 1950s and 1960s eventually led to its closure in 1969. The building was demolished the following year.

The congregations of the Wesleyan Chapel, the Primitive Methodist Chapel (Southgate) and the Congregational Chapel formally united in September 1969, leading to the building of the current-day Trinity Church to replace the three existing chapels.
